Equine Dreaming is 44x54 inches large, framed red painting of two black Arabian horses, abstract style, in a poppy field. This painting was originally painted to show me as a little girl in a poppy field dreaming of the two horses I would one day own. Unfortunately I grew up allergic to horses so this never happened. Instead, I painted them. Recently I made the painting more abstract and added a red background. You can still see a suggestion of poppies and green fields, hills and trees beyond the two back horses and you can still see a little girl in a yellow dress picking poppies and dreaming of horses. I chose red simply because it works well with black and is the complement to green which was the original background colour. The painting is framed in a metallic burnished copper and silver frame, two inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The shine works beautifully with the shine of the two horses and the radiant red background.
